Product News: Discover the New Low Profile Microscope Stage Series

20 Apr 2017


Discover Zaber’s ASR-E Series microscope stages which are designed as replacements for manual stages on upright and inverted microscopes, or for stand-alone operation as scanning stages.

The ASR-E Series of microscope stages, combined with our X-MCB2 Series two-axis controllers, are designed to be replacements for manual stages on upright and inverted microscopes, or for stand-alone operation as scanning stages. The extremely low profile and small footprint of ASR-E stages allow them to be incorporated into many different types of scanning systems and easily mounted to most common microscope platforms. Stage movement is handled by crossed roller bearings and hardened stainless steel rails, resulting in excellent smoothness, longevity, and stiffness.

The optional built-in motor encoder provides position verification and allows for closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery features. Upon detection of any slipping or stalling, the stages report the stall and can be set to automatically recover their position. Several modes of recovery behavior are available.
